The temperatures are rising in Lodi and so are the chances that you’ll be running your air conditioner to stay comfortable. Greater usage also means there is a greater chance for the need of AC repair.
Here are a couple tips on what to be on the lookout for and signs that you might need to call in an expert to take a look at your air conditioner.
- Air isn’t getting cold – Potentially one of the most noticeable signs that your air conditioner isn’t working correctly is if the air coming out is warm. If you’ve adjusted the thermostat and aren’t noticing the results in your home, it’s a good indication that you’ll need someone to check it out. Keep in mind if it’s an extremely hot day, it might take longer for your home to cool down.
- Decrease in airflow – If the air coming out of your vents doesn’t seem to be coming out as fast or strong as normal, there might be an issue. First, try to change your air filter and if you already have, it’s time to call in the professionals at Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning.
- Odd sounds/clinking – Weird sounds coming from your air conditioner is probably not a good sign. Listen to your air conditioner to hear if it’s putting out any unusual sounds such as clanking, buzzing or rattling. There are a lot of moving parts inside your air conditioner, which can become loose or damaged as a result of wear and tear
When it’s working effectively, try and pay attention to how your air conditioner typically sounds. Observe the airflow and how it sounds when working. This will be helpful and give you an understanding of what is normal behavior from your air conditioning system.
Scheduled maintenance also helps identify headaches before your air conditioner is out-of-service. Set up an appointment with Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning this spring to proactively ensure your air conditioner is ready to go.
Before it gets too toasty, test out your air conditioner to see how it runs so you can make any proper repairs. When it is hot out you don’t want to have your indoor comfort compromised as a result of a broken air conditioner. If you see any signs that your air conditioner needs repair, give Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning a call at 209-257-3156 to set up an appointment.
